    Description

    I'm Pasquale, I'm a agricultural engineer and i have two big passion, bikes and wine. My vineyard is up on mount Etna, Treccastagni, monte Ilice, a famous landscape of Verga's novel "storia di una capinera". Is already more then 5 years that i started to do wine, and founded a group "il salto del corvo" that involve different person, artist, etc that love wine so we do natural wine, with organic farming and a ethic production. The objectiv is to recovering ancient vineyards to avoid the landscape destruction of the big company monopoly.
    I work in a cyclobar too where we fix and sale bike in the city center of Catania.

    The help that we need depends of the moment of the years, harvest, pruning, or in winecellar for bottle and other operation, yes drinking too :-), we have to repair too the winecellar that is really ancient.
    I work in a bike shop too, so I need just for 4 morning each week help. The rest of the time I need that volunteers enjoy the sea, Catania and the mount Etna.
